them out there and spend time with these folks day in and day out, not only built trust between us and the afghans but it gave them the ability to prg on a daily basis. so the other frustration was the coalition effort. there was a lot of people with great intentions willing to help shared by many different countries. the frustration was many different countries, there's many different ways of doing things. so we would be out there telling the afghans, this is how you conduct police operations, this is how we do police training, this is how you hold your weapon and engage the enemy, and then several weeks later another force would come in and not that it was necessarily wrong, but it was different. so from the afghan perspective, incredibly frustrating to understand where they are going and what they need to be doing and what is right and what is wrong. so in closing if someone were to ask me from 2010 to where we're at now, is there hope i would say, yes, there is. as we stand down our combat forces and shift to an advisory and a training role i think we're going to be able to
command air control. those are operations that are familiar to us and they are, it's a great exercise for us tactically as well. we are able to integrate with cal fire itself with the objective being the fire itself. those work out for us here and we can go ahead and use those skills forward as well. thank you very much, we appreciate the opportunity. >> thank you, i'd like to thank our panelists and open it up to our group for any questions of our panelists today. yes, sir, secretary. >> there are a lot of things you can do in a forest that tend to make it easier it fight a fire like most importantly burning off the fuel during the wet season so there's less for the fire to feed on. to what extent in cal fire and all your other things do you encourage people to do things in their forest when you don't have a fire that make it easier and more effective in fighting the fire? >> it's an excellent question, sir. we spend a large time in cal fire on public education and prevention and also with respect to you were talking about fuel, the fuels program, or vegetation manage
into all of that until we make sure that the policy makers are on board with us, so these are the buildings. they are -- the project is tied to these specific buildings and pier 70 and we will work with the bigger project but this project can move forward before because we need to because these are amazing buildings as we told you before, and because we think we have a qualified term to bring these forward. again the process to date has been -- this is my fifth time at the dais this year on this project and we hope to be back before the end of the year. we have been to the central waterfront advisory group three times on this project and gotten a lot of feedback and gotten a lot of support clearly identifying the importance to the community of saving these buildings and the importance of us doo this well and coordinating with the rest of pier 70. what we're doing is rehabilitating the six buildings, the office buildings, the two on the northern side will be used as office and doing different things that the steel company did but used in the same manner and this power house building to co
station chief, despite the statements from u.s. officials in libya and the libyan government statement from the very beginning that it was a terrorist attack. here is jay carney. >> i will tell you, based on the information, our initial information, and that includes all information, we saw no evidence to back up claims by others that this was a preplanned were premeditated attack. but we saw evidence that it was sparked by the reaction to this video. lou: concrete evidence. well, the secretary of state hillary clinton returned to the public eye and one parent principal purpose. the secretary defended the administration, despite all of the evidence against it are the choices it made and the charges that they did not act to stop the murders of four americans. secretary clinton tried to dismiss those e-mails as credible evidence. we will hear her statement shortly. the obama administration has yet to find a possible reason for its refusal to communicate to the american people and explain the words and actions or inaction's when it mattered most. tonight, it appears that four americans ar
we all celebrate that and i'm going to use baseball analogies all along and these grants don't win the series or the whole ball game but they are important building blocks of steps of confidence that involve the people. the next people up at bat are the people themselves and you're going to get trained in the people that we need. you're going to help us create better schools with our school district because that is part of the neighborhood. better transportation systems. small businesses that have all of the streets we're rebuilding and the old redevelopment and the successor agency called office of community investment and infrastructure. they're succeeding. they're the ones there. they're going to use smart investment strategies with the communities to build businesses there. we learned. you just can't put poor people in housing and expect them to survive and succeed. that's not how we have done it. we have done it because we built communities and people can work in different economic spectrums and ethnicities and bringing people together and how do you figure out the be
that initiative forward. mayor lee -- i also have the director of hud here and he is going to lead us and then we will have mayor lee up in a moment. >> thank you very much and it really is a privilege to be here with you today and to build on henry's comments and it's extraordinary that the grants across the country that were awarded to hud two of them are in the same state and it's more extraordinary that both of them are in the same city, san francisco so congratulations. [cheers and applause] so for context i just want to mention a few things and this is no news to all of you here in the room and the people standing up with me today, but today in america more than 10 million people are living in neighborhoods of concentrated poverty and limited investment and opportunities for themselves and their children, and we know that one of the most important factors in determining the economic and financial success of peoples whether or not a child grows up in those high poverty neighborhoods? a. the fact that we can predict health, education outcomes of children based on the zip code, where they live
surface area, much more conventional american type of toilet. it has been used around the world for many years as a water- conserving light of flushing. it has a small water surface area and is a wash down type of toilet. some americans are not happy that they might have to clean the sides of the ball more. then, we have the high end totally automated toilet as you were already noticing. when you walk up to it, it will sense that you are there and it will open up. it has another green feature, which washes you. it saves you on toilet paper. a roll of toilet paper can take as much as 28 gallons to be manufactured, so if you conserve on toilet paper by using water to wash yourself, you are saving the waste material of the toilet paper. >> does that count toward the flesh? >> it does not. >> how much water does it take? >> it takes just a few ounces. tens of how long the user leaves it on. it has a remote control that allows you to be able to control the spray features. it has a rear-cleaning, cleaning, stopped cleaning. it has a heated sea. it has a blow dryer. it has a deodorizer. and you
suffering the biggest recession. joining us is chris williamson, global chief economist, which puts all that data together. take the german pmis, take your composite pmis, not cheery. >> it's not a good picture, no. the survey is pretty unanimous, saying the zone is going through a tough moment, the worst since 2009. these are really bad numbers. what's interesting is the official data haven't quite caught up with that yet. they're still suggesting a sta stagnation. >> if you were going to translate this into gdp numbers, hard data, what would the read-through be? >> well, we're looking for the region as a whole, a gdp collapse of around 5.6% in the third quarter and that same rate of decline as we go into the fourth quarter. that sort of contraction is what we're seeing at the moment. that matched the pmi reading in terms of how you would look at gdp. so france has joined the periphery, if you like. germany is showing some resilience, but nevertheless -- >> october manufacturing pmi came in this morning -- what was the flash estimate? 45.7. now people are looking for number 48 on that.
it in but it's important to fit it in and it will make us more effective. we did an exercise back in may in preparation for this and developed a pretty detailed concept of operations. we built load plan, timelines, spare parts lists, we really got into the weeds, thinking about the second and third tier effects, so i want my relief to understand that and i want him to know where that plan is so he can pull it right off the shelf if this ever happens and be ready to respond quickly instead of trying to figure this all out when we need to be getting underway. >> i'll boil mine down into just one, and that is i will pass to my relief to continue to support events like this and look for opportunities to continue to learn how we best in the military can integrate with our civilian and federal contemporaries to be prepared for an eventuality that we hope will never come, but we certainly should be prepared for. so the one thing i'm passing on is keep the momentum. >> thank you, all. one other benefit that was cited in the after action review and also was mentioned today is the chance it meet
at the tactical level in the marine corps. that's an area where we could use some improvement. our forces deployed to the western pacific certainly understand this, and they pass it on among themselves. the forces we deploy from southern california and the east coast that float into theater understand disaster assistance and humantarian response very well. that hasn't quite migrated itself into the institutional arena in terms of forces stationed here in the united states as it would relate to defense support to civil authorities. i think that's primarily -- this is not a primary mission for us. it's something that we do pay attention to, of course, as we deploy overseas. not necessarily forces we have here in the states. we do understand immediate response, rolling out the gate to help our neighbors in an immediate nature, but i think not so much in terms of mobilization and deploying inside our country. so, this is an area where opportunities like san francisco fleet week will allow us for, and i believe at some point really incorporate this in some internal doctrine that will benefit us in the

and general jim jones. >> i quite agree that my judgment is that much of the world wants u.s. leadership, they don't feel comfortable without it, but they no longer react to any dictatorial or any due toarls from us. they want to participate but they also want to be listened to. >> i am not even sure where the word leader hip is a good word to describe the role americ should play in the world. we should be playing the stilizg role. wehoulbe organizing our coalitions, we should be a source of stability, but when we talk about leadership, too many people think of the iraq and 2003, which was a fatally bad exercise of leadership. >> rose: we conclude this evening with dexter filkins of the new yorker magazine who has a remarkable story about death in iraq and reunion in the united states. >> the i interviewed a guy in the peace, a psychiatrist who used the term moral injury and he sa a t of soiers a marines stuff from moral injury, which he described as sort of it happens when you get an order, you do something that you believe at the time was absolutely correct and the only thing you could
'm here to discuss proposition c the city currently uses federal, state and local funds to support affordable housing programs for both low income and moderate income households. recent federal cutbacks and reductions in state funding have decreased the funding available for affordable housing programs. proposition c would amend the charter to establish a housing trust fund. the city would contribute $20 million dollars to the fund in 2013. each year the city contribution would increase by 2.8 million dollars up to 50.8 million dollars in 2024. after 2024, the city would contribute an annual amount base the on the 50.8 million dollars but adjusted for changes in the city's general fund revenue. the city would use the fund to build, purchase and improve affordable housing, provide 15 million dollars for a loan program for down payment assistance for moderate income home buyers and emergency first responders and provide up to 15 million dollars for a program that would help eligible households avoid foreclosure. proposition c would change the affordable housing requirement for pri

able through the legislative process to explain that were we to have the same rules applied to us, we would just be selling our hydro and substituting in other renewable resources. the objective of the law is to in part to reduce the emissions from power plants. we don't have any power plants that emit. >> [inaudible]. >> yeah, i have a couple of questions. so, we can't bank the rps resources? >> we can. under the rules, we can -- if we have -- if we do that math equation and we have lots of extra rps compliant power, we can bank those renewable energy credits. you earlier allowed us to register with us the western system that allows folks to have those credits certified in a way that's recognized by the marketplace. we are registering those credits, then, and we can use them ourselves in a subsequent compliance year. so, for example, in this year because last year was wet, 2011 was wet, we had some extra. this year we're going to need to purchase some, but we're also taking some of what we generated last year and applying it to this year. so, we're not having to purchase as much as w

of the cme. peter here in the studio telling us what is most valued assets and brian rix down why we should be looking for an upside surprise that could take us to 1600. let's start with larry at the cme. larry, you are citing a lack of buyers, is that right? >> yeah, sounds overly simplistic but is the lack of buyers that drove the market action today. let's face facts. on friday we had a dramatic shift to the market. we were macro focus, china, europe, the fiscal cliff to being micro-focused, worried about every single earnings. there have been some terrible earnings and there have been some good earnings. it would go down a lot further than it is right now. the consolidation and the general dearth of buyers right now. liz: you might have one positive piece of data out of china. we see a little bit of bottoming. everyone looks to the iron ore exports, said linda started to pick up a little bit in september. will people be caught flat-footed if they are not at least partially invested in stocks? >> setting up for armageddon, waiting for the coast is clear investing never make sense. when y
board and sit here as commissioners to the san francisco county transportation authority. let us take it serious. often time, i see millions of dollars, no deliberations whatsoever. let it go forward. that nonsense should stop. that is utter disregard for the constituents. you are representing. you have to say something. if it's millions of dollars, $15 million. $5 million. $10 million, you just can't sit there and not say a word. okay the san francisco county transportation, the san francisco county transportation authority and the so-called experts. they don't even represent the diversity of san francisco. they don't represent the diversity of san francisco. how are we choosing this so-called experts? on lifestyle, something else? if you speak the truth, you say, that's not politically correct. what is politically correct? is transparency politically correct? is accountability politically correct? when a high-level mta official talks to me and says she doesn't trust or he doesn't trust the san francisco transportation authority, and the deliberation and if we say what we have to say
in the dialogue to help us form our ideas. and for somebody who's spnt his personal time creating the educational links between our school district and kids and parents, to created a decisional open space in private efforts, we have the right team. today, in concert with mayor mathews and mayor reed with people in business, philanthropy, academia coming together, certainly under the very large umbrella of wanting and wishing and making sure this is the most philanthropic event the world's ever seen. it is appropriately hosted in san francisco. i have often heard when something happens in the city they want it to city. when something happens in san francisco, we want the whole world to know about it. this is a stage. super bowl will be a stage we want to announce to the whole world. in that effort i want to make sure you know we don't leave out what i think is happening with great organizations like sf city and our technology companies, that we want to embrace technology as a way to announce this. so with that i am going to do the first tweet. tweeting. the new hash tag we would like everybody in
